1. WR Rashod Bateman

Despite production that would in no way warrant any guarantee of a future contract with a contender, the Ravens decided to hand Bateman a two-year contract extension and effectively hand him the No. 2 wide receiver job. To say he has pressure on him is an understatement.

While Ravens fans might be sick of hearing about how well Bateman has been performing in OTAs, Bateman appears to be hitting a new level of consistency this time. Between former Ravens like Robert Griffin III praising him along with the team's official beat, Bateman has been getting rave reviews so far.

Rashod Bateman has been looking good for the Baltimore Ravens.

Wiggins deemed Bateman the most difficult receiver to cover in camp, even beating out No. 1 target Zay Flowers. Getting separation and making highlight-reel catches has never been a problem in Bateman's overall player profile, but his consistency and health have been what has let him down.

Bateman never seemed to be on the same page with Lamar Jackson last season, but his film showed that he was open more than his raw production would indicate. Perhaps this is finally the year where everything starts to click and the Ravens get the most out of their former first-round pick.
